Chris Camillo’s methodology for finding and evaluating investment opportunities centers around social information arbitrage—the ability to identify, validate, and monetize emerging and collapsing consumer and societal trends. Learn how to leverage family, friends, and co-workers—as well as social networking sites to build personal “trend spotting networks.” The methodology is universally logical, enabling ordinary people—whether they are time-constrained stay-at-home parents, or blue, white, or pink-collar professionals—to try their hand at investing while pursuing as few as one or two stock picks a year.
The key to prospering as a social information arbitrage investor lies in one’s ability to quickly uncover and process Game-Changing Information as it intersects one’s daily life. One must view his world with the perceptiveness of a private investigator, the inquisitiveness of a scientist, and the patience of a big-wave surfer – and be prepared to spot game changing trends while shopping, reading tabloids, watching television, playing video games, or simply catching up with friends on Facebook. .
Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley have their research departments, but self-directed investors have one another—and together these ordinary people outnumber and out-diversify all the world’s investment “experts” and “professionals” combined. The social web provides self-directed investors with the collective scale and means to keep up with the evolving landscape of products, media, entertainment, and culture and to corroborate Game-Changing Information more quickly than any Wall Street firm.
